    C57BL/6-Fut1tm1.2 mrl
  • The targeting vector has been generated using C57BL/6J DNA and transfected into TaconicArtemis C57BL/6NTac ES cell line.
  • Exon 2 contains the translation initiation codon.
  • Exon 2 has been flanked by loxP sites (size of loxP-flanked region: 3.0 kb).
  • The constitutive KO allele has been generated after Cre-mediated recombination by crossing chimeras to a Cre-Deleter on a C57BL/6 background.
  • The constitutive KO line has been derived using C57BL/6NTac animals and the Cre-transgene was removed by segregation.
  • Deletion of exon 2 should result in loss of function of the Fut1 gene by deleting the complete open reading frame. After deletion of exon 2, the transcriptional STOP cassette (human Growth Hormone - pA) should prevent read-through to downstream gene (Izumo1).
  • The remaining recombination sites are located in non-conserved regions of the genome.
  • According to NCBI and Ensembl databases, there are 3 genes in the neighborhood of the Fut1 gene:

    • The Fgf21 gene (Entrez ID: 56636; ENSMUSG00000030827) is located 3.1 kb of upstream of Fut1 exon 2 in a head-to-head orientation.
    • The Izumo1 gene (Entrez ID: 73456; ENSMUSG00000064158) is located 751 bp downstream of Fut1 exon 2 in a tail-to-head orientation.
    • The Rasip1 gene (Entrez ID: 69903; ENSMUSG00000044562) is located 6.5 kb downstream of Fut1 exon 2 in a tail-to-head orientation.

  • The corresponding conditional KO allele is available as line 11357.
  • Datamining and Design performed in 2010.

GEM Collection models exist as cryopreserved materials. Models can typically be recovered and delivered to customers within 14-16 weeks after order receipt. Customers will receive:

  • A minimum of four (4) mice mutant for the selected mutation. In rare cases where the cryopreserved material also contains a recombinase gene, this may be reduced to 1-2 mutant mice.
  • Validated genotyping protocols
  • Animal health report. Mice will meet Taconic's Murine Pathogen Free™ (MPF™) health standard.

Please note that in rare instances (2%) cryorecovery may prove to be difficult, either extending timeline or ultimately successful recovery.
Customers may purchase this model by signing the appropriate Terms of Sale (below) and providing a PO. The GEM Collection Commercial and Academic Terms of Sale grant perpetual use rights.
